Israel says attempt to smuggle arms via Dead Sea foiled

July 22, 2014 2:00 P.M. (Updated: July 24, 2014 9:57 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) – The Israeli army and police say they have seized weapons on board a boat which sailed from Jordan to Israel via the Dead Sea after midnight Tuesday.

They are questioning five young Palestinian men from East Jerusalem and Jericho, the Hebrew-language Walla news site reported.

According to the report, an observation unit of the Israeli army spotted a vessel coming from the Jordanian side in the northern Dead Sea at 1:20 a.m. Tuesday. The vessel anchored at the Israeli side and two young men stepped out carrying a bag. Three others who were waiting in bushes joined the two before Israeli officers stormed the area and detained them.

The report said seven hunting rifles were seized as well as six handguns and an amount of drugs.
